In honor of this celebratory day of hope and new beginnings, I thought it appropriate to talk about some simple, yet powerful ways to bring in this lovely new season.
Though most of these you've probably heard of and perhaps have already started doing since Spring rituals tend to happen pretty naturally, it's always nice to have reminders and move forward with refreshed intentions.
cleaning and clearing
Spring cleaning is usually referred to as a household chore, but it's actually a very powerful practice. Winter gathers a lot of stagnant energy. For months we keep the windows and doors of our homes sealed tight as we accumulate dust and clutter and even extra body weight.
There's nothing necessarily wrong with this, but everything has its season. And the Springtime comes to keep things so fresh and so clean clean, as the hip kids say.
The actual act of cleaning does more than just clean up the extra dust and grime. It makes space for a new energy. It symbolizes and invites change. And it has proven to help with people's mental and emotional health.
